When the U.S. Air Force returned to fitness testing after a 15-month hiatus caused by COVID-19, it needed to deploy a new tracking system for airmen. The new myFitness app—created in collaboration with KPMG and alliance partner Salesforce—was developed in only four months. It became the first enterprise-wide Salesforce implementation across the Air Force. In its first month of use, myFitness enabled more than 25,000 fitness assessments to be administered to Air Force service members worldwide.

Application capabilities allow the airmen to manage fitness assessments, documentation, and scheduling, which includes walk-in, same-day fitness testing. Users can view past scores, individual fitness reports, and dashboards showing completed or updated fitness-assessment scores. Questionnaires and medical forms can be downloaded, and users can access a calculator to determine a composite score based on estimated fitness results. Exemptions also can be recorded so that individual elements of the fitness exam will not be computed in the composite score.

The myFitness app is an example of next-generation government and private enterprise collaboration. Called “government-led and contractor-supported,” the process aims to teach government team leaders and developers about Salesforce while our teams support them with on-the-job training. Two years from now, when KPMG rolls off the project, the government will be able to maintain and enhance the system in-house.
